It's a beautiful time of year for a motorcycle or car ride.

Why not take one that gives back?

Wright-Way, a no-kill animal shelter in Murphysboro, is hosting its first Ride for Rescue on Saturday, October 1.

The cost is $15 per driver, $5 per passenger.

All motorized and street-legal vehicles are welcome.

During registration, the organization will be offering tours of the rescue, as well as a meet and greet with some of its adoptable adult dogs.

The last bike out will be 12 p.m. and the last bike in will be at 5 p.m.

The first stop is at Midland Inn and the last stop is at the Corner Tavern where drinks can be purchased.

There will be food and a silent auction.
